Premier League Sack Race Odds: Saints manager Nathan Jones odds on

Southampton boss Nathan Jones has been slashed from 12/1 to 1/2 after a bizarre press conference angered the Saints’ fanbase after their loss to Brentford.

Jones now favourite to be next manager to go

Following a 3-0 defeat to Brentford which leaves the Saints three points off 17th place, Nathan Jones proceeded to hit out in a strange outburst, in which he said that he has “compromised in terms of certain principles because of one, personnel, but two, the way that people want to play”.

He also went on to say that there weren’t many better managers than himself in Europe. The comments have also reportedly been detrimental to his dressing room support.

He was appointed manager on November 10th prior to the break for the World Cup. He has won just five of his 13 games in charge, with just one of those wins in the league.

However, after people describing his post-match comments as “delusional”, and fans chants along the lines of “you don’t know what you’re doing”, he is now the favourite to be the next Premier League manager to go.

Who are the other favourites in the sack race market?

Jesse Marsch has been under pressure at Leeds for a while, and their defeat against Nottingham Forest continued their seven-match winless run in the Premier League. His best price of 6/1 before the weekend halved to 3/1 following a disappointing defeat on Sunday.

Many fans will remember their famous 2-1 win over Liverpool at Anfield in October, but Leeds haven’t won a league game since returning from the World Cup break, meaning they sit just outside the relegation zone in 17th despite having a game in hand on the teams around them.

With Sean Dyche’s Everton, Leicester and improving Wolves picking up wins this weekend, the pressure grows on Marsch to get results on the board.

Gary O’Neil is also one of the favourites to leave his post, with Bournemouth sitting above Southampton but below Leeds, meaning they sit in 19th position. Bournemouth have lost all but one of their games since beating Everton in November and host Newcastle next this upcoming weekend, who will surely put even more pressure on the Cherries boss.

Despite their defeat to high flying Brighton this weekend, O’Neil’s sack race price lengthened from 4/1 to a current best price of 12/1 as a result of some of the names above him shortening fast.

O’Neil is still under pressure to keep Bournemouth up, and his honeymoon period from when he first became the first team coach - where the Cherries were unbeaten in his first six games - has quickly evaporated, with nine defeats in his last 11 league games.

Jury still out for Potter and Moyes

Following draws against Fulham and Newcastle respectively, Graham Potter at Chelsea and David Moyes at West Ham are the next favourites to be become the next manager out the door.

With Chelsea sitting in 9th in the table, despite three clean sheets from their last three, Chelsea fans will want Potter to pick up some more wins and boost Chelsea up the table.

They are still in the Champions League and face Borussia Dortmund next week, but with the side 10 points off the top four and some big signings arriving in the January transfer window, the pressure could certainly pile up on Potter.

As for Moyes, including a win against Everton which surely saved his job, they are unbeaten in their last three, which has meant that his best price to leave next has gone from a best price of 4/7 two weeks ago to a current best price of 20/1.

Klopp price shortening after poor form

Liverpool have one just one of their last seven games in all competitions and Jurgen Klopp, previously untouchable at Liverpool, holds a similar best price to Moyes to be the next Premier League manager to leave next with a best price of 20/1.

Liverpool, who won two trophies last season, finished runners-up to Manchester City and reached the Champions League final, are sitting in 10th – a huge 11 points off the top four.

They have a game in hand on Chelsea above them, but three league defeats from their last four highlights just how poor they have been, which has seen the pressure crank up on the long-standing German manager, who has been in charge of the Reds since 2015.

Pep Guardiola enters the sack race shake-up

A surprising entry to the sack race shake-up is Pep Guardiola, whose Manchester City side have this morning been charged by the Premier League for breaking its financial rules following a four-year investigation. The league has referred the club to an independent commission over alleged rule breaches between 2009 and 2018.

When City were reported last year, Guardiola was quoted as saying that he puts faith in the club and defends it because of that, but would walk away if it turned out he had been misled.

The 52-year-old Spaniard is still a 100/1 shot with some bookmakers in the next manager to go market but is as short as 11/2 with two bookmakers.
